Birthday

Hi and Happy Labor Day if you're in the USA and celebrate the holiday. Enjoyed my Iris folding class on Saturday and finished the 4 cards planned.  I work slowly so finishing all was a feat, as I felt very fumble fingered. It was a fun technique, not that hard once someone shows how-to. Good way to use up snippety things too. I'll share the class cards when these are made into finished cards.

We're in the throes of making Halloween cards, and I'll try to intersperse other kinds in among the Spookies, so that you won't get totally bored. Here's the card I've shared today, and it will be for a fall birthday, mainly due to the autumn color tone.

- image was a borrowed PSX stamp colored last summer with copics onto Xpress paper. Diecut using S/Binder Label 8, as it's a largish image. Sponged DI Wild Honey, Vintage Photo around the edges.

- Elizabeth Craft Curvy Leaves diecut from a snippet of dark green as was the sentiment.

- cardbase covered with Graphic 45 French Country 6x6 chosen because I liked the colors with the Poppies.

Hope you enjoy this one. Have a blessed day, enjoy whatever it is that you may be doing today. Come again soon. Hugs
